Specifically set in 'The West Indies', El Dorado turns its attention to a mixed-race, middle class family interred in their formerly grand but now dilapidated house. A grandson returns home to lay some ghosts to bed, finds himself torn in two by his own conflicting class allegiances and gains an alarming insight into the truths of home life.
